Our Team

James Rippeon, Attorney

Helping businesses succeed is the heart of business law for associate attorney  James Rippeon. He’s focused on elevating the client-lawyer relationship, putting their needs at the forefront of every interaction.

James’ role is to provide continuous care for our clients. In addition to furnishing advice and guidance, it’s James’ mission to identify the small issues that can crop up in the course of doing business — things that may seem small potatoes, but over time can become big, expensive problems.

If business, litigation, and real estate law solutions are what’s called for, James is in charge of the matters that come along with the territory.

Today, James has come a long way from the classroom getting his JD at the George Washington University Law School and a BA in Government & Law and Anthropology & Sociology from Lafayette College. We’re so glad he’s on our team.

  If you’re looking for a great book, James is seriously inspired by Darren     Hardy’s The   Compound Effect. The idea that one must approach a problem with little fixes, applied   consistently and over time is what’s called for when making sustainable impact is indeed     compelling. Whereas blunt force —   coming at a thing with in a battle of attrition  —  doesn’t   really help much.

Michael has supported my company for several years now and I have come to rely on his advice in many aspects of my business. Michael's approach is consistent – he has always taken the time to listen to our needs first, discussed options/approaches second, then (and only then) provided his advice.
